Chapter News

We will be back!

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are currently unable to hold concerts at the Woking Leisure Centre. 

The Wurlitzer Hall is being used as a vaccination centre and we fully respect this must be the priority.  We are in regular contact with the centre management, and the situation will be reviewed as soon as it is feasible to do so. 

  • Due to the explanation above, we currently have no concerts scheduled.
  • The UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year will be hosted as soon as it is practical to do so.
  • The Paul Kirner's Music Palace trip to Porth, which was due to take place on Saturday 4th April 2020, was postponed.  We hope to reschedule this once the pandemic is past, hopefully in 2022 but this will depend on government rules at the time.

This website will be updated as new information becomes available.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact our chapter trustees, who's details may be found HERE.

Help Needed

We need your support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend committee meetings (either in person or virtually, e.g. via Zoom).
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this or pop into the centre when required as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, selling tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find HERE.
